Folk Art Quilts

Folk Art is defined as art originating from the common people of a region reflecting the traditional culture, values and social issues.  Folk Art Quils are generally made by someone who learned informally or self-taught. Antique Folk Art Quilts are commonly made of cotton or wool and meant to be used. Folk Art Quilts often depict the maker's life with appliques of animals and flowers, children's hand prints, houses and farms. Like their antique counterparts, contemporary Folk Art Quilts use cotton and wool and have applique and embroidery blocks depicting flowers and animals and other items in daily life.
